AB/AM, AB/SM Programs

Certain GSAS Degree Programs allow eligible Harvard College students to apply to the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences , typically in the fall of their junior year, to earn an AM or SM degree through the Concurrent Master's program during their final year of undergraduate study.

Participants remain registered in Harvard College. If, after they earn both bachelor’s and master’s degrees, they are admitted to a GSAS PhD program, they are considered second-year graduate students and will receive two terms of credit towards their tuition schedule. 

How to Apply

Interested undergraduates should review Combined Degrees for next steps.

Applying to a PhD Program

Current AB/AM or AB/SM students who are interested in enrolling in a GSAS PhD program must apply through the GSAS Applicant Portal.
